The Central of Male and Female Workers of Brazil (CTB), an entity affiliated to the WFTU, wishes success in the general strike of March 25, which is being organized by the trade union movement in Italy, and reaffirms its total solidarity with Italian workers in this difficult moment.
The world has been facing an adverse situation, especially for the working class, either because of the austerity measures and the withdrawal of rights that we saw in the last period, or because of the worsening of the crises with the advent of the pandemic caused by COVID-19.
In this scenario, of serious crisis of the world capitalist system, the class struggle is intensifying and the resistance of the working class is growing, through the fight against the attempts to subtract rights and to lower wages, the combat of precarious work, and in defense of workers health and security at work.
That is why we express our total solidarity with the companions of Italy in this General Strike. Only with a lot of struggle, unity and solidarity we will be able to get through this tough situation.
